ADM Update

 

          

Summit County is one of 15 counties targeted for a new awareness campaign sponsored by the Ohio Department of Health.
The campaign is focused on 15 counties that accounted for 80 percent of Ohio's fentanyl-related overdose deaths in 2014.

The campaign is designed to raise awareness about the signs of a drug overdose and to urge family members and friends of people who use drugs to obtain the opiate overdose reversal drug naloxone to administer during an overdose while waiting on first-responders to arrive.
